-- does hillary clinton and the obama administration view the libya intervention as a success? how much did they view that intervention as what precipitated the set of effects afterwards? >> militarily the intervention by nato in libya was clearly judged widely as a success. it forced gadhafi out of power and it changed a state that had been among the most draconian in its practices at all levels into something that opened up hope for six and a half million people. the problem is the united states has never been very good, whether it's in afghanistan, iraq, in creating an alternative and the bol line is the united states basically walked away when it came to how do you create a new state, how do you facilitate the diverse forces, whether it's the tribal elements, more than 300 militias that had formed during that brief eight-month involvement, how do you stem the flow of weaponry and create an alternative. if you saw charlie wilson's war, at the very ending of the movie when he says i raised all this money, billions of dollars for arms to the opposition to fight off the soviets but i co
in mali and what they are doing there. is this worrying the obama administration? is there support for this? >> well, obviously the united states is providing refueling facilities for the french warplanes so, yes, the united states is playing a role already. i think there are no comfortable choices and that's one of the realities across the region today, whether it's in mali or syria, post revolution egypt and libya. the united states doesn't have a grand strategy. it's looking at each case individually. the reality is that with islamists taking over northern mali, which is larger than france, just that part of it, this then creates a greater threat throughout the region. and unfortunately the outside world dithered for way too long in trying to figure out a response and to the earlier point, the fact is the africans can't do it themselves. there's been talk for two decades about creating an africa rapid deployment force and they haven't been able to bring it together, provide training, cohesion, command and control and as a result there is no local or regional alternative. >> afri

change america's middle east policies. but instead the obama administration has pursued the same sorts of policies as its predecessors, the same policies that did such damage to america's strategic position. as a result, for example, the obama administration today is not just presiding over a stalled middle east peace process, it is presiding over the very demise of a two of state solution to the israeli/palestinian conflict. and while the obama administration's military intervention in libya was able to overthrow moammar gadhafi, it is now incubating in libya a senate threat to american security -- a significant threat to american security interests. and as we detail in our book, "going to tehran," the obama administration has gone beyond the bush administration in threatening the islamic republic to doing something we argue is even more dangerous, to actually discrediting engagement as a strategy for dealing with the islamic republic of iran. they've to done so by saying tht they've tried to reach out to the islamic republic of iran and failed and, therefore, engagement is perhaps a

number of felons who have actually amild to buy a gun. the obama administration to the best of my knowledge, has prosecuted virtually none of them. >> schieffer: but there are no background checks at gun shows. >> we already have a background check when you go to a regular gun dealer. a gun dealer who is at a gun show, in fact, does a background check. >> that's right. >> if he's an authorized dealer. all of those folks fill up on the the paperwork. it goes to the federal government-- don't hold me to this-- but i think there are 70,000 cases will of people who are convicted felons trying to buy a gun who was turned down. it's illegal to apply to buy a gun if you're a convicted felon. i think this administration has prosecutedly virtually none of them. so they already have the data. they were not doing anything with it. what i'm trying to say is there is a perennial desire photomake the innocent have a more complicated life because of the hand full who are the guilty rather than focusing on the guilty. >> schieffer: but you still have, at the end of the day, you have these awful t

companies in the world told me that the real problem lies in the policies of the obama administration towards cooperations. >> i think we've got to get our act back together in terms of business and government working together. a tax policy which is predictable. the ability to say how do we create a win/win environment. certain states in the u.s. are doing a good job. those models whether they occur in canada, colorado, uk or israel or russia is what we're looking for. >> just to put this in some perspective for you. that company, cisco, has nearly $40 billion parked overseas, not here in the u.s. and chambers is pretty clear telling me he's not going to be investing a lot of that money in the united states unless policy changes here. so, two very different arguments but the same goal and the same conversation here all week. job creation. and i think the consensus here is that people really want clarity from washington on taxes and on spending. they want to see a long term deal. miguel? >> thank you, poppy harlow. 40 billion bucks, a lot. >>> if you're still on a high from the golden
effects, we save health care about the cost. the obama administration a few years ago used t o -- to quote data. about $25 billion had no impact on the patient. if we spent $3 billion in these test capabilities, you save health care costs. we are looking at these game changing technologies to improve the overall cost of health care. the beauty of these is it is the essence of personalized medicine. if we can more effectively take your dna and identify the nuances of your specific disease, which cannot practice trial and error madison -- medicine. it is hundreds of billions of dollars wasted on trial and error madison. more specific approaches treating disease at the individual level will save a tremendous amount of money. >> ron andrews, d work with nih? do you take koretz with them? >> we are one of the -- do you take grants with them? >> friends as collins, the head of nih, -- francis collins, the head of nih, is talking about how health care will change. we have a great relationship with them. they grant money to researchers and misapplied researches and with technology -- and we supply

. the obama administration says it is only lending logistical support to mali's defenders, cautiously treading water while the outgoing secretaries of defense and state publicly support further u.s. involvement. last week, hillary clinton told a congressional hearing that we must recognize that groups alined with al qaeda are part of a global movement. quote, we can kill leaders but until we help establish strong democratic institutions, we are going to be faced with this level of instability, close quote. but what's more, she added, we cannot afford to retreat now when america's absent, there are consequences. yes, you heard that right. a battle cry from the same woman who grimly opposed the war in vietnam and made no secret of her distaste for american armed forces in general while she and bill occupied the white house. mami is just one domino. yes, i said domino, in the great terrorist threat to north africa. with porous boundary, the militants move easily from mali to algeria to libya, drawing more recruits each day in a land where places like timbucketue signals adventure. the wall of att
of budget battles with the obama administration. >> reporter: republican congressman paul ryan said republicans and conservatives will need prudence to deal with president obama's second term. part of that, he says, is showing voters what the president's agenda looks like once it's been implemented. >> in the president's first term we argued against big government in theory. and in his second term, we'llng practice. obama care is no longer a 2,000 page bill. now it's 13,000 pages of regulations and its growing. it's being implemented. this year the law will restrict our ability to use flexible spending accounts. it will raise taxes on life saving medical devices. >> reporter: ryan, possible a presidential contender in 2016, said republicans should be prepared for the president to try to "de legitimize them," but urged them to be smart. >> we'll need to use every tool at our disposal. sometimes we'll have to reject the president's proposals. that time might come more than once. sometimes we'll have to make them better. the president will bait us. he will portray us as cruel and unyie
the administration and barack obama, the president will come and join us and say, look, it's time for us to set differences aside and do what any couple does, any group of people do which is say, look, you're not going to agree 100% on everything. and you're not going to agree on 100% on anything. so, find where we can agree. >> when they did that on january 1st of this year, you voted against it. we found middle ground between democrats and republicans. >> there was no middle ground. where were the cuts? >> middle ground on the fact that you guys had asked for no tax increases and then you put a threshold of $1 million. >> we always said, according to the boehner rule, we had always said if we're going to raise revenues through borrowing and through taxing is we've got to do something about the problem. you can't keep digging the hole deeper and keep asking people to pay more taxes. >> you did vote against a consensus agreement. >> no, there really wasn't. this was a last-minute jam of a deal that i think we could have done a lot better for the american people. >> are we going to have a last-m
the debt ceiling ultimately unless they get severe spending cuts and the obama administration is not going to give it to them. you're going to watch the u.s. do crazy, crazy things this year. >> he was pretty clear. he called it crazy. i talked to eric cantor earlier, the republican majority leader. he sort of said we're ready to deal and compromise, but people are very worried about what the u.s. could do. >> oh, and this latest decision to just kick the can, i hate to use the cliche, further down the road, axel neighbor is a former central banker in europe, also the head of ubs and he was absolutely in no doubt that what we are seeing in the u.s. in the political and economic process is dangerous. >> if you have the debt ceiling, the europeans will talk about how you can make that binding. in the u.s., the concern is much more whether you can lift it in time in order not to put too much break on the economy. now, the u.s. economy has bottomed out, it's coming back, and i think sooner or later the u.s. has to face the fiscal issue not just in the sense of delaying adjustment but really ma
for the obama administration. >> yeah. >> but you have really backed arming the rebels and a no-fly zone. >> yes, the rebels are -- i mean, bashar assad is being supplied by the russians and the iranians with iranian revolutionary guard on the ground with weapons. everything that the opponents of intervening in syria said would happen if we did have now happened because we haven't. the president said it's a red line, the use of chemical weapons. bashar will use that as a green light for everything less than that. 60,000 have been killed. >> how do you know who the rebels are? how do you know -- >> i met them. >> you met them all. >> no, but i've certainly met enough to know who they are, but the sad news is that as every day goes by, more and more jihadists gain more influence and there's more and more of their presence which is going to make the post-bashar assad situation even more and more complicated. the jihadists are pouring in there, so, of course, i know who they are. >> just quickly, tell me quickly, chuck hagel, does he have your backing now? you met with him this week. >> no, but i wa
emirates of afghanistan in which revived and presented itself as a really grave dilemma to the obama administration as it arrived in 2009. and so our effort was to do what think tanks do which is just to try to provide some ground truth and some complexity and granularity about this phenomenon, recognizing that the sort of clicheed iml imagine of a one-eyed mullah and his band of devoted and intractable fanatics was inadequate and really a falsifying of the problem. so the purpose was not to prosecute a particular view of the taliban, but just to start to document some sections of its diversity and some aspects of its character that were otherwise, um, not part of american debate or discourse. so i'm really, really proud of this book and of peter particularly whose leadership of the national security studies program at new america over the last five years has been one of my joys in my office just to support him and to watch him. and katherine as well who worked very, very hard. the last thing i want to say is that this book and the ideas and the research in it is really parking lot o

is not an option. the obama administration provided financial incentives for paying and promoting teachers. proponents rightfully point out that they are huge potential improvement over systems of which all teachers are paid according to the uniform summer schedule that gives zero way to any measure of performance in the classroom. on the other hand, many experts have warned of these can teacher assessment data have large margins of error and can deliver misleading results. the union representing new york teacher spent more than $100,000 on a news paper added a campaign built around the headline this is no way to write a teacher. opponents argue that the value added assessments create false precision that would be of use by parents and public officials who do not understand the limitations of this kind of investment. this is a case where everybody is right up to a point. the results were giving teacher often based on a single test taken on a single day by a single group of students. all kinds of factors can be to random fluctuation. the correlation in performance from year to year were a s
